Update #1

13 days ago

A big thank you to the donor so far who've helped us to reach $235 on this page and $121 on the book page. (I've since consolidated the book page into this one.)

We're on our way to hitting our first goal of $1000. At that level, we'll upgrade our website to one that includes vote pledges from people who like the platform and want to see us break free to create a clean, green America that is healthy, wealthy, and free.

Donate a dollar! Every bit counts! Thanks again!

We can do better together, America.

Our leaders have us divided and conquered. 

We're better than this. We are worthy of healing, as individuals and as a nation. We only need to believe in ourselves. With a little love, kindness, and teamwork, we will settle the score once and for all. 

Let's create a Clean, Green America so that we may be Healthy, Wealthy & Free.

Healthy, Wealthy & Free

About Joe

Nature is my church. Love and liberty are my religion.

Imagine

An America powered by renewable energy, fed by organic and regenerative farms, watered with pure, clean, freshwater, and employed by companies with properly aligned planet-friendly values.

It's all within reach. We just need to believe in ourselves.

Imagine being happily employed knowing that your company offsets their impact on the environment in order to reduce the amount of waste entering the environment.

Imagine not needing to see the doctor or exercise as much because our food made us healthy instead of sick.

Imagine growing up knowing that you'll be able to retire with dignity without the stress along the way.

Imagine what you would do with your life without overwhelming student loans.

Imagine that your daily work contributed to a higher cause of aligning humanity with nature, and getting paid to do it!

Imagine knowing that your Citizen Dividend was invested in a Clean, Green America, producing returns for you every year through retirement.

All of this is possible, with one minor change: convert the central bank into a central credit union.

We the People deserve a national dividend, not the banks! They already have all the money. Why do they need more? And why should it come from us?

It shouldn't. And that's why we need to make this change.

To paraphrase one of my favorite presidents, Theodore Roosevelt, the credit belongs to We the People for the work we do every day - not the banks.

The Problem

We the People pay a $1 trillion bank subsidy every year. 

This is equal to the amount we pay for defense or Social Security and healthcare combined.

And what do we get for this?

A bank bailout in 2008.

More fossil-fueled wars.

As a matter of fact, we're more stressed today than ever before. Income inequality, climate change, expensive healthcare, you name it

It's all related to the fact that we lack ownership control over our own money.

Solution

We can restore liberty in America, save a ton of money and be healthy, wealthy and free by doing just one thing: convert the Federal Reserve into a Clean, Green, Citizen-Owned Credit Union. If we do this, we'll slash the $1 trillion bank subsidy from the federal budget, 25% of total spending, and invest our $4 trillion balance sheet into renewables to create a clean, green America and to improve retirement security for all Americans.

Just as exciting, there will be enough money left over to make every person in America into a millionaire by age 40. To check the math, divide the one-trillion dollar subsidy by 330 million Americans for a total of $3909 per person per year

Invest the $3909 per year into renewables at 7% for 18 years, just in time for college or retirement for some of us, and we'll have an extra $155k just for participating in the American economy. 

Investing the Citizen Dividend every year for 40 years makes every American a millionaire by age 40. This doesn't require a single dollar of tax money. All we're doing is taking the bank subsidy away from the Fed and giving it to the people as it should be according to Article 1, Section 8 of the Constitution. 

Ok, Joe. Great idea. Now what?

Break the back of the broken two-party system.

They're just too extreme for the mainstream.

Thankfully, a majority of America wants a third party.

Millennials want a third party.

Republicans are split.

And Democrats have admitted to rigging their own party...

Personally, I'm upset that my parents aren't getting the healthcare that they need. 

I've also had my own personal experience with government overreach and entrapment. You can read about that in my book, Hijacking America: Liberty Strikes Back. (HijackingAmerica.com for more info.)

Everyone wants to talk about drug prices, and that's part of the problem, but the real problem is that the system is a disaster. 

We don't have healthcare. We have sick care.

Our food and water are killing us

Stress is killing us. 

The system is killing us. 

In Flint, people are living from bottled water as though they were deployed to Iraq. 

Starting salaries are the same today as they were 20 years ago while tuition has doubled. 

Our dollar is worthless, worth much less than when I was born 40 years ago. It's down 85% since we left the gold standard in '73.

Our Constitution has been trashed--we no longer have the rights that I and others pledged our lives to support and defend. 

And no one is doing anything about our environment.

It's not rocket science, people. 

LET'S GET OFF OF OIL AND GO GREEN.

AND RESTORE LIBERTY IN AMERICA.

If we got off of oil, switched to renewables and regenerative organic food, plastic pollution would disappear, our food and water would be healthy and so would we. 

We'd have better paying, more satisfying jobs, less stress, and better lives.

The two-party system can't fix it because the system is rigged.

That's why I'm done sitting around waiting for someone else to take action.

Send in the Marines.

In order to guard against giving the election to one side or the other, we will secure ballot access in just enough states to take electoral votes from both parties and hang the election in the process. 

In this scenario, Congress will determine the next President. 

Because the two parties cannot agree on anything, they'll choose the Independent who vows to form a coalition government and to restore our Constitutional rights.

Here's the 50 State Signature Breakout:

With Electoral Votes and Target States:

These target states are the Northeastern states where a majority of voters are unaffiliated independents, the Midwestern swing states for the same reason, and Rocky Mountain states because they are heavily Republican and anti-Trump.

These are the target states and their signature requirements. We may add others dependent upon polling data.

  •      275 - Tennessee
  •   1,000 - New Jersey, Vermont, Utah, Idaho, Rhode Island
  •   1,500 - Iowa
  •   2,000 - Minnesota, Wisconsin
  •   3,000 - New Hampshire, Alaska
  •   4,000 - Maine
  •   5,000 - Colorado, Pennsylvania, Virginia, Ohio
  •   7,500 - Connecticut
  • 10,000 - Massachusetts

And the target Electoral Outcome:

With volunteer power, this is more affordable than you might think.

Here's the budget for the first state:

  • $20 per night for hostel x 21 nights = $420
  • $20 per day for food x 21 days = $420
  • 3200 miles from Michigan to Utah and back = $330
  • 25 t-shirts at $12/shirt = $300
  • 2,500 door hangers = $300 (discounts for larger orders)
  • 5,000 business cards = $90
  • Volunteer food expense = 20 volunteer days x $15/day = $300
  • Sub-total for our first state = $2,160
  • Plus 10% Buffer = $2,376 State Total, $2.37/signature

We'll target sporting events to gather signatures, starting with NFL and NCAA football games.

But to get there in time to recruit volunteers, we'll need to hit our funding target in the next 10 days. This will ensure that we secure Utah with enough time to plan for New Hampshire where we have just one month to get 3,000 signatures in January.

Each state lists their signature requirements under the Elections page.

They usually provide a petition with very specific instructions.

This is a decentralized effort to save America.
